Glox seedlings

Hi, and Happy New Year Everyone! Wanted to share pictures of my Gloxinia seedlings, about to bloom. I planted the tiny little dust seeds last year in February, and the three that went in bigger pots are going to open their flowers. They are from a gorgeous bright pink mom, selfed, so I'm really not knowing what to expect:)

Of course, they all could be identical, in which case, I have many to find homes for Lol
This is another, close to blooming.

Thanks for looking :)

Great Job! Especially knowing how small the seedlings are when they hatch and how much care you need to give them to get the blooming size so fast.

I am sure when they start blooming - your house will be mobbed with friends who want to adopt one or 2 or 3. You will be overwhelmed with requests. You can restart any one of them from a cutting or a leaf. Usually they produce a tuber first- and then the new growth from the baby tuber will give you a bloom.
